Barrel & Bushel: A Stop That Can't Be Missed!

His passion for food is tangible, you can feel it, you can taste it. Chef Dan Dienemann pulls up a chair next to our table and starts to describe that passion, and how it is incorporated into the food he prepares and serves every day at Barrel & Bushel. So much passion for a restaurant I might not normally think to visit if I wasn’t already staying at The Hyatt Regency at Tysons Corner right next door. I can’t believe anyone could possibly miss out on this place. By the way, the picture above is his take on Chicken & Waffles! Bourbon french toast, B&B pickles, B&B hot sauce and buttered amber maple syrup. Is your mouth watering yet? You know you want some.

Bread & Tulips: Italian Home Cooking in the Heart of NYC!

Decisions, decisions, decisions, usually when I sit down at a new restaurant I can pretty much find the dish I want in a matter of a few minutes. That wasn’t the case at Bread & Tulips. So many amazing sounding dishes, for such a small menu. I kept sending the waitress away, without an order. Finally I go with my gut and choose the Strip Steak Tagliata with roasted herb potatoes, cippoline agrodolce. I wasn’t disappointed.
